Rugby

I’ve played rugby since childhood and I still play now. I’ve always been a prop, my preference is loosehead, but I tend to lumped into the tighthead location more often than not. I’ve never been that good as a player, but there again I’m still at it, and I like to think I’m reliable.

I play (with pride) for Border Park RFC, which is based in Kielder, just by the Scottish border. We are the RFU’s furthest flung club, and it is the most beautiful spot for a rugby pitch that I’ve ever come across. For the last 5 years or so I’ve been Border Park’s secretary. Here’s a team picture from the end of last season, when we were finalist (note the precise terminology!) in the Northumberland Cup held in in Morpeth. I’m the bashed-up one on the back line, left of centre:
